April is the Bud Month, With Nature
Most Active.
The name April comes from Aper-
ire, which means to open—and if you
will get out of doors during April you
will see the buds opening. It used to
be called the grass month, also, and it
might just as well be called that now,
for it is certainly a grassy month.
There is grass all summer, of
course, and it grows in other months
than April, but it is this month that
we notice the grass much more than at
other times. April is the first month
of the year where the grass every-
where in the fields and along the roads
ond streams becomes green and splen-
Each month in the year seemes to
be the most beautiful when it comes.
That is, there is such beauty in the
world all the time that a fellow can
sit down any time and say, “This is
the prettiest month of the year,” and
get away with it, as the boys say.

When the time sets in the average
society woman becomes excited and
fidgety about going to the sea shore.
She may not know what she wants to
go for, but she wants to go, and that
is enough for a woman to know. As
a rule, women are not philosophical;
but there must be an exception made
in favor of sea-shore philosophy. It
isn’t the cold, hard-lived philosophy of
the scientist, nor the radiant, high-
colored philosophy of the crank, but
plain natural philosophy, such as can
be found pure in children and women.
They want to do a thing because they
want to and ought to, and what they
ought to do is a duty, and duty is
right; therefore, if they want to go it
is their duty to go, and it is not right
to hinder them. The benefits arising
from a visit to the sea depends very
largely upon what you go for, or
whether you have any business there.
The mere fact that you are tired of
staying at home is not a sufficient rea-
son for going; neither is the fact that
your neighbor has gone a valid excuse
for you to shut up your house and
pack off for a month’s broiling and
steaming. Sick people should not go
to the sea-shore except on the advice
of competent physicians.

But Natives of Out-of-the-Wey Plasm
Have Their Own Idea of What
Is Beautiful.
Meyer Krupp of Seattle, veteren
trader of furs, who for 25 yeurs has
penetrated the out-of-the-way places
in the Orient, says that even in is
lands that are uncharted and virtu-!-
ly unknown the beauty of Americen
women is known. For, when trading
sable skins, the natives demand in re
turn pictures of pretty women. Mr.
Krupp takes on each trip hundreds of
photographs of women. He selects
the pictures at random.
One can never tell what the natives’
demands will be for women’s photo-
graphs, says Mr. Krupp, according 2
the Seattle Times. Blonds as a rule
are much desired. One well-known n.o-
tion-picture star, whose salary is re
puted to be equal to that of the Pres-
ident, members of his cabinet and the
director of the mint combined, would
no doubt be shocked if she knew the
lack of appreciation evidenced among
the natives of her much-heralded
beauty. The trader couldn't barter
away one dozen of her photographs
for the skin of an ordinary squirrel
trapped out of season, while on the
other hand an obscure member of &
film company’s extra crowd, a woman
who has never once figured in a “fade:
out,” is all the rage among fur hunt
ers. The traders and hunters talk
over her picture in terms of sable skins.
Alleged That Some People Can Pro.
duce Sparks That Will Light
the Gas.
Almost everyone is familiar with
what is known as static electricity.
One rubs the cat’s fur the wrong way,
and gets a little shock. The cat, how-
ever, must be a dry cat. Or one walks
across a carpeted floor on a dry win-
ter’s day and then touches a radiator
or some other metal object; whereup-
on there is a perceptible discharge
from the body. It is said that some
folks can light the gas in that way.
Anyhow, while sparks produced in
this manner are ordinarily harmless,
they are under some circumstances a
source of serious danger. They cause
a great many accidents in gasoline
distilleries, explosive factories, flour
mills, dry-cleaning establishments, cot-
ton-ging and threshing machines.
The National Association of Dyers
and Cleaners of the United States is
now undertaking an active campaign
to eliminate fires from this source.
Inasmuch as appreciable charges of
static electricity can be produced only
when the surrounding air is very dry,
the most effective prevention is to
dampen the atmosphere of factory
rooms by injecting steam.
Wealth in Maine Fur Trade.
“As for the fur trade in Maine, care
ful estimates place a money value of
a million on this business. To be
sure, this is through the figures report-
ed by the state game department. But
the official totals do not give the
catch on thousands of farms where
the boys do their own shooting and
trapping; nor do they include many
thousand dollars’ worth of furs
shipped directly out of the state with-
out check on them, says the Lewiston
Journal. Many a farm is worth far
more for the furs it bears than for
the garden stuff it raises. The state
is rich in skunks, for instance, which
is one of the most valuable “crops”
we have. Muskrats, though not so
plentiful, when dyed form the fash-
fonable “Hudson seal.” Minks and rac-
coons and weasels and foxes, with
other game, constitute the bulk of this
History Continuous,
There are, of ccurse, no beginnings
or ends in history. We may walk for
a few miles by the side of a river,
noting its shallows and its rapids, the |
gorges which confine it and the plains !
through which it meanders; but we
know that we have seen neither the be:
sinning nor the end of its course, that
the whole river has an unbroken con:
tinuity, and that sections, whether of
space or time, are purely arbitrary.
We are always sowing our future; we
are always reaping our past.—Dean

Censure for Land Abuse.
In Sweden a farmer can be repri-
manded by the governor of a province
for abusing “mother earth.” More
than 1,100 cases of abusing farm land
have been dealt with. Corrective
measures are considered necessary
where land is found overgrown with
weeds, where a field yielded notably
less than the neighboring fields, wherc
the annual production decreased, «:

Baden Railroad Adopts Unique Sys-

by Passengers.
Late arrivals at the ticket windows
of railway stations in Baden hereafter

New York Herald. Instead, they will
retire to the other side of the room,

be expected to keep up to date with

Explaining the “Planetesmal” Theory
The visiting star left behind a sun
surrounded by a vast revolving cloud
of matter that had been torn out of it.
In this cloud were millions of small
lumps of matter—called “planetes-
mals,” or baby planets. One of them, a
little larger than the others, be-
came the nucleus of our earth. It
picked up the smaller lumps that hap-
pened to be revolving about the sun in
the same general path, Think of a
molasses-coated baseball flying through
an endless swarm of gnats.
In the course of time—millions on
millions of years—the earth picked up
nearly all the baby planets within its
reach.—Popular Science Monthly.
Left Her Wondering.
I was cleaning house, and was wear-
ing an old dress. I went out the back
door to shake the last rug and no-
ticed a nicely dressed gentleman com-
ing up the drive. As it is quite a dis-
tance from the road to our house, I
decided I could tidy myself up a lit-
tle before he arrived. So I changed
my dress, brushed my hair and waited
for the doorbell to ring. But I waited |
in vain. When I looked out of the
window he had entirely disappeared.
I wonder if he had been frightened

Heat From Oil and Coal.
It is generally recognized that under
normal conditions 125 gallons of oil
will produce about the same amount
of utlizable heat as a ton of coal.
With gas oil at the present price of
eight cents a gallon, the relative ex-
penditures would be $12 for oil and
$14 for coal.
